i've found that screenplay. you know ever since i got my , first film, it was my father really who pointed out this great cinematic relationship with de niro and martin scorsese. he started showing me these films. when you feel that impact at a very early age, it makes quite an impression on you. and so, you know once i got the , opportunity, in essence to , finance pictures with my name, he was the first guy i aggressively went after to collaborate on something with. and since then, the man knows more about cinema as an art form than anybody i have ever met in my life. >> yes. >> and so every movie has been this, this incredible education for me. really and i have learned a lot , more about, you know, what it is to be an actor. and almost these mantras. it is not this conscious thing that he does with me.
